The new phone books are in! The new phone books are in!



Remember? Steve Martin's character ran excitedly down the street, shouting "The new phone books are in." Excited because he was SOMEBODY! I am vascillating between ole Navin, and a glowing four year old.

You know the four year old's look (and DAMN if we don't all lose it) of wonder, pleasure and surprise? No amount of Revlon blush can put that rosy glow on your face, no fancy brushes, no make-up pros, no shimmering highlighters. Rod Stewart had a lyric "shining like a new dime"-that just about sums it up. I am wearing that look in my heart (maybe not on my middle aged face) today.

My pattern "Two Measures of Joy" was posted on Elann today. Me! My pattern! I have tried and tried all year. And it's finally HERE. Better than Christmas, it is!

And I am slightly in awe of how fancy schmancy it looks. Amazed at what good lighting can get you! Can I live THERE? Cuz I might be a hottie in photo land!

Your knit buds are all in awe of your accomplishment, and you should be able to hear the cheers from coast to coast and even across the northern border. Great job, JG!!

Bets, you should be proud. It's a great bag, and hey, you're published, baby!

I am so happy for you Bets with your Big Win and a fab bag to boot. I am planning on knitting/felting the bag but doing a non-musical thingy on the front, if I make take such creative license. Or not, if I can work up something Mozart-y. Good job!

You're too much. You deserve every bit of praise not only for the winning design but for the many months of hard work.

It's a great design, bask in all your glory! The photo is pretty awesome - maybe Elann should do passport photos :).

Or driver's license photos!!

But seriously, the bag looks good, and I really like the shape and the way you did the handles.

I know a designer! I know a designer!
